    The run-up to the OSCARS 2023

    The run-up to the OSCARS 2023

    AFI and Golden Globes (The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, HFPA) and other awards nominations are being announced.

    AFI's top ten (foreign films excluded) were:
    AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER
    ELVIS
    EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE
    THE FABELMANS
    NOPE
    SHE SAID
    TÁR
    TOP GUN: MAVERICK
    THE WOMAN KING
    WOMEN TALKING

    I'm going to watch THE WOMAN KING (now on Amazon Prime), and guess I have to watch NOPE (rental on multiple platforms) and want to watch WOMEN TALKING but it's not in theaters in this area yet, nor is AVATAR. As usual titles on the pre-Oscar lists contain movies we can't see yet. AVATAR starts showing locally this Friday (Dec. 15, 2022). Let me comment that saw BANSHEES (which is emerging as a top non-US awards nom favorite) on the big screen, but did not review it because I found it depressing. And frankly, repetitious. All the Martin McDonagh writing quality, excellent production and superb cast not withstanding.

    2022 films I watched and didn't review or may want to watch


    EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE

    Watched:
    ALCARRÀS (Carla Simón)
    (NYFF). Metacritic 87%. Watched but didn't review, so shapeless it's hard to describe, or enjoy.
    RRR (S.S. Rajamouli), one of the talked about movies of the year, but, not looking for a tumultuous 3-hour Indian docu-drama, didn't finish. On Netflix.
    EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE. (Daniels) Multiple category Oscar possibilities so I forced myself to watch. It leaves me cold, and is going to win big.
    EMPIRE OF LIGHT (Sam Mendes). Watched in a theater, didn't seem worth reviewing.
    NOPE (Jordan Peele). Many platforms. Watched, enjoyed, didn't review. Very clever but somewhat slight.

    Want to watch:
    ALL THAT BREATHES (Shaunak Sen) (NYFF) Important Indian doc I want to watch, coming 2023 on HBO. (Watched, from Mostly British: great! Superbly made and moving film.)
    NO BEARS (Jafar Panahhi) (NYFF), definitely want to watch, now at Film Forum but inaccessible from where I am now.
    ARGENTINA, 1985 (Santiago Mitre). Political thriller available on Amazon, watched, a bit conventional, but good. Won Best Foreign, Golden Globes.
    CAIRO CONSPIRACY aka BOY FROM HEAVEN (Tarik Saleh). Thriller set at Al Azhar University in Cairo, want to watch, not yet available 2/23Pa.
    BAD AXE (David Siev). Important doc, plan to check out on Amazon.
    HOLY SPIDER (Ali Abbasi). METASCORE 68. Grim Tehran serial killer tale from Cannes Competition, might watch. But deterred due to the depressing subject.
    JOYLAND (Saim Sadiq) Pakistani, dancer falls for trans woman. On Amazon, not yet watched
    NOVALNY (Daniel Roher). Doc about Russian poison assassination attempt, on HBO.
    Watched: an entertaining film with thriller qualities, as people say. Not my favoriate 2022 doc, though.

    FROM METROPOLITAN, CHRIS EIGEMAN AS NICK, CENTER

    Holiday watches, Christmas 2022:

    A Whit Stillman trilogy
    METROPOLITAN (1990)
    BARCELONA (1994)
    LAST DAYS OF DISCO (1998)
    A perfect entertainment because these films are cozy, sophisticated, witty, and ageless and METROPOLITAN takes place over Christmas vacation with members of the preppy class attending dances and deb after parties in Manhattan. Stillman's dialogue is like if WASP preppies made a Woody Allen movie with script by Jane Austen. Everything comes out in fully framed sentences and paragraphs and is often very funny. BARCELONA, not quite so interesting, came out of Stillman's living in that Spanish city and is about a slightly older age group, beyond the deb parties. LAST DAYS OF DISCO finds Chris Eigeman, Nick in METROPOLITAN, a manager of a huge Studio 54-style discteque where drugs and money laundering are involved, but a beautiful young woman (Chloe Sevigny, then 24) is working with friends for a small publishing house. Stillman is an 'auteur' whose capturing of dry humor in sophisticated dialogue among the denizens of or refuges from the upper class is rather unique. Unfortunately, he has not been able to get the funds for many films, and his 2014 "COSMOPOLITAN" pilot for a six-part TV series about young sophisticated American expatriates in Paris did not lead on to the desired series. But he did in 2011 make DAMSELS IN DISTRESS, featuring Greta Gerwig, about a trio of young women at a college seeking to raise social and cultural standards; and in 2016, most recently, he made LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP, the logical outcome of his sensibility: the adaptation of a never-before-on-screen minor Jane Austen novel.

    Rewatched (in part): Matt Reeves' THE BATMAN (R. Pattinson) for its broody gorgeousness.
